Hier eine hervorragende Quelle für die Interpretation von Songtexten:
Und dazu noch ein Beitrag, den ich besonders gelungen finde:
I see how someone could glance at these lyrics and see, "I'm holding on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground" and think suicide, but after actually thinking about the lyrics it becomes clear that it is not.
"I'm holding on your rope,
got me ten feet off the ground"
He's trying to hang on to this person.
"I'm hearing what you say but I just can't make a sound
You tell me that you need me then you go and cut me down"
He feels like he has no say in the relationship, "can't make a sound". The rope is a metaphor for his ties to this person, but she keeps cutting him off and hurting him. He still has feelings for her, but knows she's not good for him and so his love is turning "blue".
You tell me that you're sorry didn't think I'd turn around and say:"
The rest is pretty much self explanatory; he's fed up with what she's doing to him, and so it's too late for her fake apologies.
